Jenn Mierau is a Canadian electropop musician originally from Winnipeg,[1] who is now based in Montreal.[2]

Biography[edit]

Jenn Mierau is a self-producing and recording musician. Mierau sings, plays Wurlitzer, makes beats, and also plays bass and electric guitar on her tracks. Mierau started eventually experimenting with found-sound samples and vocal layering. Her album Hush was described as smoky gothic synth pop, "a tasteful and experimental pop album that ranks comfortably among the likes of Robyn and Lykke Li."[3]

Mierau also is a staunchly active DIY advocate. For her 2011 album Hush she rug-hooked a 14,400 stitch self-portrait while recording a time-lapse video of the process. The physical CD itself replicated the entire rug from front to back and side to side.[4][third-party source needed]

Jenn Mierau has released music (her own and collaborations) on various labels: Defected,[5][third-party source needed] de'fchild productions,[6][third-party source needed] Semisquare Music, Galactique Recordings and The Villa. Her CD, hush, was self-released.[7][third-party source needed]
